Volkswagen Golf VI R Cabriolet technical and pricing details revealed

Volkswagen has finally announced technical details for the Golf VI R Cabriolet which in the United Kingdom starts from 38,770 pounds while in Germany has a starting price of 43,325 euros. It will be available on order this upcoming spring and is sold exclusively with a 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine connected to a six-speed DSG gearbox, producing 195 kW (265 HP).

Thanks to this setup, the Golf VI R Cabrio will be able to run the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 6.4 seconds, en route to an electronically-limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).

As standard it rides on 18-inch alloy wheels but for more money you can get it with 19-inch alloys. Compared to the regular cabrio version of the sixth-gen Golf, the more potent R model has a 25mm lowered suspension and comes with goodies such as side sill extensions, LED daytime running lights, bi-xenon headlights, glossy black rear diffuser, chrome-tipped exhausts and black door mirror housings.

The interior cabin has four individual sport seats wrapped around in leather, just like the multi-function steering wheel. Its fully insulated top needs 9.5s to be lowered or 11s to get it up. This can only be done at speeds of up to 18 mph.
